Report: Grindr gay dating app overloaded, crashes just as Olympic athletes arrive in London

Grindr, the gay dating app, apparently is so hot in London right now, its server crashed as the first Olympic athletes arrived, reports people.co.uk:

Technicians believe the arrival of Olympic teams on Monday sparked a flood of new customers – and loss of the service in East London.

On Thursday, Grindr CEO Joel Simkhai apologized on the site's blog, headlined Sorry About That ...:

Hey, guys.

I want to take a minute to personally apologize for the service disruptions that you experienced during the past few days. I know it was frustrating; I was frustrated myself. Just like many of you, I rely on Grindr in my day-to-day personal life, and not having access to it made me feel disconnected.
